In California high schools, there is a rule that says that girls cannot play on a “boys’ team” if the school has a girls’ team at the same level (e.g. varsity) in the same sport. I am under the impression that this was forced upon the state by Title IX.
Is there something similar in college sports - for example, women can’t play “men’s” basketball? I have heard of women playing baseball and football, but as women’s baseball and women’s football are not NCAA sports (softball is not considered the same thing as baseball), such a rule wouldn’t apply. However, I have never head of a woman on a men’s college basketball team, and while it’s possible that the only women who have even considered it just weren’t good enough, it just seems a little hard to believe that it has never happened, considering the sheer number of teams.
